Just to let you know so you don't get scared
thats weird mine comes on fine. at first i was looking for the light on the top of the cluster then i saw this really light yellow little bulb in the corner

So what you're saying is that the low fuel light comes on when you have say an eighth (1/8) of a tank left? And the cluster is in a 4th gen?? That's odd...what year? lol. I'm just curious why it'd be like that in mine, then not in yours.

Low fuel light just comes on when the needle is very low. The amount of fuel that it comes on at is still the same as a stock cluster its just that the needle falls faster. The cluster he put in is a preludes 5th gen (97-01), and I have no idea what the last sentences means.

not with out sending it to a shop. I called a shop about that and they asked them to do it and they said that they would needed me to get some from with my mileage from the DMV. And I figured that when the shop sees that the cluster is for a Honda accord and their looking at a preludes they would ask questions. but there are shops that do that stuff. you could try and crack it open and roll it but that just sounds like a bad idea

That actually looks amazing to me.... much nicer look even with the gap.

How long did all of the swap take you?

And about how much did the cluster cost?

benjermen112, to tell you the truth, I don't recall exactly which was A,B, or C, but it all becomes clear when you cross reference the amount of pins and/or the colour of the wires (i figured it out by matching the first...say 3 wire colours)

Flatline, talking labour time alone, I'd say about 5 hours over a span of a few days. And I got lucky with the cluster & got it for $100...as you'll be hard pressed to fine one that cheap nowadays.

f20aaccordturbo, thanks for letting me know, but I just wanted to save ppl from any headache. It would be really troublesome to someone if they started on their lx, and things started to not add up, it would be really frustrating to me, so I didn't want it to happen to anyone else. I'm not 100% sure on what the differences are, but If you know them, feel free to list them, so that others that tackle the project may know.

If you have an Lx there shouldn't be much difference. the difference is in the years. and if you follow the color code you'll come out close but some colors aren't the same from year to year as far as function so if you have a different year. And on a 91 for the 'A' harness there are only 7 pins....

Here are pics from a 91's harness so you can get an idea of how youll have to re-pin if your doing a 91 instead of a 90:

It does indeed. Also, anyone who has done the swap using the DIY, please do let me know, and let me know if there were any problems with the DIY so that I may rectify them. Also, if you know exactly what the differences are between LX & what not, please do let me know, and we can add whatever changes are necessary to make it easier for those with different models to complete the swap. Cheers
